Just back from two nights chilling out in the Knapdale Forest area in Argyll. The forecast was for stupid winds over the weekend so we decided to leave the boats at home and take a trek to camp we discovered last year.
It was nice to just pack a single bag for a change instead of chucking my entire kit cupboard into a canoe for a weekend.
My kit list for two nights ...
Vango Nitestar 2 season synthetic bag (packs tiny)
Unsponsored 3/4 down underblanket
Warbonnet Blackbird hammock with whoopie slings, tree straps and dutch clips
DD 3x3m tarp
Snow Peak Trek 900 titanium pot with coathanger bail arm
Mug and 6x 2-in-1 Kencos
Alpkit Long titanium spoon
4 x dehydrated meals from Leezo )
Tatonka burner + 250ml of meths
Suede gardening glove
1L Nalgene of water

Norrona gortex trousers
Bernie Garland Bushcrafter knife
Bahco Laplander saw
Schrade honesteel (just arrived in post so I had to take it for a play)

Another good one lads, enjoyed just being on fire duty and lounging around camp for two days. The twelve hour kip last night did me wonders too.
